Singles / Re: Crankshaft shock absorber nut
« on: 16 January, 2022, 14:47:18 »
Hi,

Is the SRM cushdrive nut suitable for this model?  I have fitted one on a '51 Flash and the hex head make fitting and tightening much easier.

Dave.

If it is I'd recommend getting one; It makes working on the shock absorber a doddle. By coincidence I've been checking the timing of my A10 (to save further embarrasment trying to start the bike when leaving friends in North Lincs ;))and the SRM nut also takes their easy fit timing disc.

Thanks for the explanation Chris, I appreciate the difficulties trying to organise anything in current time and I echo Dave's post above.

So, the venue is presumably free that weekend. Maybe worth a phone call.

The Beagle cable is a lot thinner than a standard speedo cable.

Not required.
Beagle will never excede a speed limit,

Bantam / Re: B175 fork assembly question
« on: 16 December, 2021, 19:17:11 »
Hi Ian
thanks for that. I have been searching around before and since posting and couldn't find an answer elsewhere.
In the meantime I've discovered the new ones I bought don't fit in the sliders!

Bantam / B175 fork assembly question
« on: 16 December, 2021, 14:18:10 »
I am rebuilding a set of B175 forks but don't know which way up the nylon slider that goes between the upper and lower bushes should be installed.
The  nylon slider has two inner diameters. For half its length the bush is a sliding fit on the stantion for the remaining length the wall of the slider is thinner so there is a gap between the stantion and the slider.
So, should it be installed with the thicker section uppermost or the thinner section uppermost?
Thanks

I would expect it to be a simple press fit without collar

I prefer the one on the left. It looks leaner and more purposeful

Sidecars / Re: 1961 Coach built Watsonian Sidecar screen
« on: 02 December, 2021, 12:44:22 »
When I had to make one for the same model I made a frame from ally which I could bend by hand an used cobex to make the screen. The cobex was thin and flexible so easy to shape to the screen especiallly as there are no complex curves. The hood poppers doubled as the means od fixing the cobex to the frame. It worked fine for many miles of daily use
